Spartan signee Anthony Dixon receives all-city honors

Clyde Travis of the Chicago Sun-Times posted his all-public league player selections on February 26, Anthony Dixon just missed a first-team nod, being the sixth player chosen:


Name - Position - Ht. - Yr.

Chris Colvin, Young, G, 6-3, Sr. (signed with Iowa State)

Malcolm Griffin, Hyde Park, F, 6-4, Sr.(signed with Northern Illinois)

Jeremy Jones, Simeon, G, 6-2, Sr. (unsigned)

Jonathan Mills, North Lawndale, F, 6-5, Sr. (unsigned)

Darius Smith, Marshall, G, 6-0, Sr.(PAC-10 & Big 10 have offered)


Anthony Dixon, Hyde Park, F, 6-4, Sr. (San Jose State)

And from Roy and Harv Schmidt of the Bulls-eye Report:
We look for De LaSalle's supersectional opponent at Chicago State University to be Hyde Park, a team that we had ranked higher than anybody in our preseason rankings of the top 45 teams in the state. As we indicated then and we will say again now, Hyde Park is clearly one of the top four programs in the Chicago Public League this season and features three D1 caliber players in 6'4 Anthony Dixon (San Jose State), 6'2 Malcolm Griffin and 6'5 Jerome Moore.


October, 2008: Anthony is a 6'4" combo wing. He is probably more of a wing forward but he is working to expand his game and his versatility to become more comfortable on the perimeter. He is one of the biggest sleepers in Chicago. He is a good scorer inside and has a decent mid range jump shot. He will need to work to extend his range as well as improve his ballhandling on the perimeter.
